Controlled vocabularies (Custom Vocab, ValueSuggest) for Collecting module


#1

Hi all,

I’m currently exploring possibilities for user contributions to an Omeka S site using the Collecting module. My question is whether the Collecting module is supported by the controlled vocabulary modules Custom Vocab and ValueSuggest, i.e. can I use Custom Vocab and ValueSuggest to control a contributors inputs on a Collecting form?

I know that I can create a “Select menu” when creating a form in the Collecting module, but can I set a particular item property such as Dublin Core’s “subject” and have the user prompted to use either a term from LCSH or from my own supplied Custom Vocab list?

Thank you,
jp

The Collecting module does not integrate with the CustomVocab or ValueSuggest modules. You could duplicate your custom vocabulary in a prompt’s select menu options, but there’s currently no way to implement an autosuggest feature in Collecting.
